Abstract:

This thesis explores the application of the Commercial and Industrial Type Activities CITA program to Department of the Army DA installations with particular emphasis on the problems associated with the attempt to implement the revised Office of Management and Budget OMB Circular No. A-76 in Fiscal Year 1980 FY 80. Initial discussion covers the evolution of the CITA program and the current guidance and implementing instructions of OMB, Department of Defense DOD, and DA. This is followed by a description of the training program for CITA management personnel. Based on discussions between the author and DA installations and Major Army Commands, an analysis of key problem areas and varying approaches to the implementation of the A-76 policy in FY 80 is presented. Fort Gordons CITA review, which was designated by DA as a pilot study for umbrella type CITA contracts and the first DA installation to follow the procedures of the revised A-76, is described. Conclusions and recommendations are intended to assist DA installations in their attempt to complete the required 100 review of their CITA inventory by FY 84. Author
